    I PRAY THAT THE MOORE FAMILY CAN MOVE ON FROM THIS TRAGIC EVENT. BUT FROM FIRST HAD ACCOUNTS MR. MOORE'S FAMILY HAS LIVED IN THE AREA SPANNING THE LAST 80 PLUS YEARS, HE WOULD NEVER WALK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND DEFINITLY NOT WALK INTO A CAR. HE WAS WALKKING HOME THE SAME PATH HE'S ALWAYS WALKED, THE VEHICLE HAD TO BE GOING WAY ABOVE THE SPEED LIMITS TO CAUSE DEATH. I AM SURE THE LADY WHO WAS AT THE DRIVER'S WHEEL IS UPSET, BUT THE FAMILY HAS BEEN CHEATED OUT OF THE YEARS THEY WOULD ENJOY FROM MR.MOORE. HE WAS A BROTHER, AN UNCLE,A FATHER, A GRANDPA, AND A WELL KNOWN CITIZEN IN GEORGIA. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO BOTH FAMILIES CONCERNNED AND IF THIS IS OF ANY CLOSURE HE WAS LOVED, AND WILL BE MISSED.

    I know the lady who accidently hit the pedestrian and she is extremely upset. He stepped out in front of her and she could not avoid him. Pray for the Mr. Moore's family and for this lady who is emotionally a basket case after this event.
